    hi there i'm brand new to pet forums and i need your help urgently.

    i'm fed up with my vacuum cleaner which i bought because it was supposed to be good at picking up pet hair and it's been rubbish since i bought it. now i've broken it and need a new one but don't want to waste my money again.

    i've got 3 gorgeous but hairy housecats who refuse to glue their fur to their bodies and insist on dropping it over my carpets. can any of you recommend a fantastic (inexpensive) upright bagless vacuum cleaner. please help me urgently - my house is up for sale and i need to keep on top of things. i'll love you forever if you can help me. thanks

    Dyson all the way i would die without mine we have 2 very pale cream labs and they molt all the time , the good thing is though if you brush them often enough it does help with the general sheding around the house . I do vacume every day it doesnt take long and keeps it under controll if i leave it for more than a day it takes me twice as long . My Dyson is the one with 9 cyclone heads but they do one for pet hais not sure if it would be any better i think it has a different brush head on it . Good time to get one though im sure you,l get some off in the easter sales.

    Yep I agree Dyson seems to work best for me too. We have a dark haired dog who also molts a lot and we have a light shade of carpet throughout the house, but the Dyson tackles it pretty well and is worth the money.

    definately go 4 a dyson( they come with 5year gaurentee). also invest in a zoom groom brush for your cats, it will make a huge difference, i know from personal experience!!!:)

    I have a henry!! it is excellent. A good price and really does what it says on the tin. Picks up all my pussy and doggy hair plus toddlers biscuit crumbs.

    Hospitals and industries use them for their efficiency and robustness.

    hi and welcome! :)

    That's what we've got and its brilliant!

    The dyson we had was crap, had an electrolux pet thing too and that was useless!

    I've been through loads of vacuum cleaners in my time and the one i have now is certainly the best. I've an upright bagless hoover and its a pet one - its currently half price in Currys - down to £85. Be warned though - it is heavy.

    Good luck - let us know how you get on!! And welcome too btw!!
